[bksvol-discuss] Re: Ascii codes for copyright sign and registered sign and how to find all ASCII codes on a Windows System

In MSWord bring up the insert menu by doing the following:
1. Within a file press the alt key and navigate to insert.
2. Navigate to Symbol and press enter and a dialog box will appear listing all the symbols. 3. If you have eloquence, and are running JFW, eloquence will pronounce everything correctly whereas with the neospeech will not, don't know about the real speak solo ones, but anyway, once the dialog opens, you'll find yourself automatically in an edit field so tab once and you'll see a list so then you'll have to use your left and right arrow keys in conjunction with the control key to go forward and backward from symbol to symbol. 4. Once you've put your cursor on a chosen symbol, tab until you hear insert button or alternatively you can press Alt+I to insert the chosen symbol, so there you have it.
Hope This Helps all of you.

"If you go without playing the trumpet for one day, no one knows, two days, only you know, and more than three days without practicing, girl you better look out, because everyone will know!" Today, I find myself constantly saying those words, just to get myself going, to not give up, and it works. Since I learned to play the trumpet at the tender age of 10, I have spent so much passion and much diligence with that instrument that I will not give up on it. Sometimes my instrument puts me into awkward situations where I feel like they won't ever end, but the trumpet gives me a lot of hope with the majestic, crystal-clear sound it brings to my ears.

Hi Judy!

This post was very helpful.  You really know your way around a computer.

Thanks for the way to make the copyright © and registered ® symbols with the Alt-number combination. How about trademark T. I didn't think of that one when I posted all the ones I knew. I got T from typing (TM) in Word.

I just went to the character map. I can read it, but I don't know if there is a way to select any of the characters while using a screen reader, so, for those who do use screen readers, it seems clumky.

Yes, Start -- Run -- charmap does bring up the character map. I just tried it.

Hi all,

The copyright symbol
© is alt-0169 (alt key zero one six nine)

The registered symbol
® is alt-0174 (alt key zero one seven four)

Remember you must use the numeric keypad to type in the numbers,
or this doesn't work.

I don't know if a screen reader can interpret the following correctly so it is even usable if you're blind, but on a windows system you can reach a utility called the "Character Map" that is built into every Windows system. It lists every ascii letter and symbol and its keyboard equivalent in a table, and you can even copy the symbols from this table into any program on a Windows system.

On a Windows 2000 and Windows XP systems you reach the Character
Map by clicking the Start button, then clicking Programs, then
clicking Accessories, and then clicking System Tools, then
clicking Character Map.

On a Vista system you reach the Character map by clicking the
Start button, then clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories,
clicking System Tools, and then clicking Character Map.

On a Windows 7 system you reach the Character map by clicking the
Start button and then in the search box, type Character Map, and
then, in the list of results, click Character Map.

Alternatively, I think on all windows system you can click on the
start menu, chose the run option and in the run dialog box type:
charmap.exe - but I'm not positive about this one.

Also, in Microsoft Word, it is under the "tools" "autocorrect" menu where the option is set to turn use of a left parentheses followed by a letter c into a copyright symbol and a left parentheses followed by the letter r into the registered symbol. It is set to do this by default.

Hope this helps. smile

am pretty sure the execution of those 2 symbols (for copy
right and registered trademark) have to do with auto spelling,
but someone else, possibly Mayrie, will correct me if I am
wrong. I know that with the settings I have set him both my
neck and my PC it executes it encircled as opposed to having
parenthesis on either side of the letter.
